By concrete examples, exchange of good practices and expert lectures we aim to show the practical possibilities of production and usage of biomass in Europe, with a preview insight in the production in Vojvodina. We also aim to awaken the interest of individual agricultural farms, agricultural cooperatives and clusters and regional and local governments in the use of
this form of clean energy.
